Forsyth Postdoctoral Fellowship in Art History (2021-22): University of Michigan at Ann Arbor

The Department of the History of Art at the University of Michigan invites applications for the Forsyth Postdoctoral Fellowship, dedicated this year to Afro-Diasporic, African American, and Native American/ Indigenous/First Nations arts and visual cultures. Especially welcome are applicants proposing new critical conversations across disciplines, connecting art history to the environment, philosophical humanities, medicine, science and technology, religion, museology, and other creative realms.

The one-year appointment begins September 1, 2021, with possible one-year renewal. A PhD in a relevant specialization, acquired within the past five years, is required before appointment. The Forsyth Fellow will teach two courses per year. They will work with a mentor, who will help open doors to the UM community, providing guidance as requested or needed.

Applicants should provide a cover letter, CV, research plan, teaching statement, dissertation abstract, writing sample (35 pages maximum), and three letters of reference. Submit materials via Interfolio (https://apply.interfolio.com/77637) by December 15, 2020.

For further information, please contact Jessica Pattison (Executive Secretary, Department of the History of Art) at histart-execsec@umich.edu. Candidates from underrepresented communities are strongly encouraged to apply; the University of Michigan is a public R-1 institution committed to core values of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
